Snowbirds 431 Squadron last performance of the 2021 season

The RCAF Snowbirds performed their final show of the 2021 season Friday afternoon.

The RCAF Snowbirds performed their final air demonstration show of the season for family and limited military members on Oct.15.

Guests and most military members were restricted from attending because of Covid 19 precautions

The team was scheduled to perform 17 shows in Canada and the United States. Some of the U.S, shows were cancelled, among them thee Huntington Beach show. That show was cancelled as the oil spill fumes posed a threat to the aircraft.

This year's Snowbirds under the command of Lt. Vol Denis Bandet of Regina began the season with two shows ending the Operation Inspiration.

The cross-Canada pandemic operation was postponed after a fatal crash in Kamloops last May that killed Capt. Jennifer Casey and injured Capt. Richard MacDougall. The crash was caused by a bird strike.
